Learn fun dances that were once all the rage! From 16th century pavans, galliards, almains, branles, courants and country dances, to 19th century reels, quadrilles, jigs, waltzes and dance games. Dances for couples, trios, sets and circles, in all different rhythms from Italy, France, Germany, England and Scotland. Bring the Renaissance, Baroque, Georgian, Regency and Victorian-eras alive and build new skills in a fun friendly social atmosphere. Three hundred years of fun and romance. There’ll even been opportunities to attend balls presented by the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy!
Note: as a suggestion, students might like to join one of the LNL sewing courses to tailor a period costume in preparation for the annual Jane Austen Festival, Canberra, balls and period reenactments.
Any comfortable shoes or socks are fine (or dance jiffies for the ladies will be available on first night for just $20)
Dr John Gardiner-Garden is an internationally-recognised authority on early dance who has taught all around Europe and North America, has published fifteen (15) books on dance, produced eight (8) CDs of dance music, and is the director of Canberra's Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy
